Sustainable Communities Index (SCI)

Description:

The Sustainable Communities Index (SCI) is a tool to track progress towards a livable, equitable and prosperous city. The SCI includes over 100 performance indicators designed to measure diverse sustainable community objectives organized under seven sections: Environment, Transportation, Community, Public Realm, Education, Housing, and Economy.  The measures not only look at the city as a whole, but also expose the variation in environmental quality and livability among various city neighborhoods. The data and methods for the SCI Indicators are all publicly available.
 
Local jurisdictions can use this tool to assess their neighborhoods as they work on strategic plans to implement Health in All Policies (HiAP) in their jurisdiction.
